Wow! Lionel Richie. My brother is such a fan. He’s coming to Hollywood Bowl. “Hello.. is it me you’re looking for?” I’m singing now.. Lol. Looks like I’ll put Lionel Richie all day on Itunes, brush up on those lyrics so I can sing-a- long at the concert.
The five-time Grammy winner is following up a sold-out European run with a North American tour, including a stop at the Hollywood Bowl. He will perform hits from his 30-year discography, beginning with his eponymous 1982 debut and extending through last year’s Tuskegee, a platinum-selling collection that features duets of his hits with a variety of artists. Word on the street is that these concerts tend to become a giant sing-along, so brush up on your lyrics and get ready for some of the greatest ballads the ’80s had to offer and much more.

Singer-songwriter Lionel Richie got his start in Motown as part of the Commodores, but it’s as a solo artist that he really shines. He became one of the most successful male solo artists of the 1980s, earning number one hits from his debut in 1982 with “Truly.” His other number one hits include the Caribbean-flavored “All Night Long,” “Endless Love” with Diana Ross, “Hello” and “Say You, Say Me,” which also won an Academy Award and a Golden Globe.
